Title: Time to say goodbye to the stripping rule
Post by: Raidercast on August 13, 2019, 04:57:26 PM
It is time to change the contentious new stripping rule back to how it was up until 2017, where defending teams are penalised for any strip where more than one defender is involved in a tackle.

The rule was changed in 2018 to allow a tackler to make a strip at any time so long as there is only one tackler in contact with the ball-runner at the time of the strip.

We didn't see a lot of it last year but at the start of this year, the Storm (who always seem to be ahead of the curve when it comes to taking every advantage of the rule book) and Cameron Munster in particular showed how it could be done.
